There are 2 groups of people that need to read this post.
First group: Anyone that hasn’t yet heard about all the wonderful benefits of having elderberries in your world.
Second group: Those of you who are already in the know regarding elderberries, but haven’t heard of ,or bought from, Elderberry Life!
For both groups, I have been honored to be able to review Elderberry Life. They gave me one of each of their products so that I could try it out and tell you all about it!
I also received (but it is not pictured above) Elderberry Blackberry Juice, which is also in a mug like the one on the far right.
I enjoyed every single one of their products. Seriously. However, if I had to say anything bad about any of it, I would say that the elderberry juice (with the blue top in the picture above) was not my favorite. It was not horrible… just personal preference really. So, basically… Since it’s just personal preference… I can’t say anything bad about the company or it’s products! The elderberry aid and blackberry juice were probably my faves and it would be hard to choose one as my number one fave.
I used the jelly on toast and it was SO YUMMY! I am kind of a strawberry jelly snob. I really won’t eat any other kind of jelly. Or, I should say, I used to not eat any other kind of jelly. I am now an elderberry jelly fan as well! I don’t normally eat toast and jelly every day, but I seriously did after I tried the elderberry jelly. I so looked forward to my toast with elderberry jelly every morning!
So… what’s the big deal about elderberries?
The elderberry is high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Among it’s many benefits, it cleanses the digestive system, balances the emotions, and boosts immune response. According to the “Why Elderberries?” page on the Elderberry Life website, elderberries have the ability “to fight at least 10 different strains of the flu virus and play a role in the treatment and prevention of HIV, herpes, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, and other chronic diseases, to fight at least 10 different strains of the flu virus and play a role in the treatment and prevention of HIV, herpes, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, and other chronic diseases.”
And, in case you are wondering, there are NO added sugars in the juices!! I am especially excited Elderberry Life has decided not to add sugar to their juices. So many juices add sugar to their products and it is not necessary. Not only is it not necessary, it will hinder the healing properties of the elderberry! So, kudos to Elderberry Life on that!
The only complaint I have regarding the juices I received from Elderberry Life is that it was very difficult to only drink 1-3 ounces daily as suggested. It is so darn yummy! It was hard for my kids too! They kept asking me for more! Check out my youngest with her Elderberry mustache!
And, now, thanks to the great mugs they put the Elderberry Aid and Elderberry Blackberry Juice in, we have 2 new glasses to drink out of in our kitchen. I try not to buy things stored in plastic, so it’s wonderful all the products are in glass. The mugs we kept to drink out of and the rest of it got recycled!
